International law firm Pinsent Masons has advised Cardiff Council and Vale of Glamorgan on the joint procurement of the organic sustainable waste project developed by contractor, Kelda Organic Energy (Cardiff) Ltd.
The project has been procured as part of the Welsh Government’s Food Waste Treatment Programme and is the largest to close to date.
Under the proposed contract – worth approximately £20 million – construction would commence this summer on the 35,000 tonnes-per-year capacity food waste per year plant on the Dŵr Cymru waste water treatment works.
Commenting on the deal Didar Dhillon said:
"We were extremely pleased to have worked on such a significant transaction for Cardiff and the Vale which will provide a solid platform for the Authorities to work towards the Welsh Government’s challenging statutory recycling targets and the national waste strategy, “Towards Zero Waste”.
The site is adjacent to the Tremorfa industrial estate in the City, for which planning permission is already secured. An open windrow composting (OWC) facility would also be constructed on a Council site in Cardiff.
It is anticipated that the 1.5MW anaerobic digestion (AD) plant will be operational in 2016 and will provide electricity for the waste water treatment works.
The Pinsent Masons team acting on the transaction was led by legal director, Didar Dhillon, senior associate Oliver Mangiapane and associate Gemma Glasspole.
